Abstract
New type nonlinear crystals are widely used materials for frequency doubling and parametric process to generate the ultrashort pulse over a large wavelength range. The angle phase-matching curves for optical parametric generation in three principal planes of biaxial crystal KTP pumped by 355 nm, 532 nm and 1064 nm ultrashort pulse light have been calculated and analyzed. The calculated results have been confirmed by experiment. Picosecond tunable parametric laser from 630 to 3420 nm was obtained with a 20 mm long KTP pumped by 532 nm in the X-Z plane via type II phase matching. The maximum energy conversion efficiency is 30%, pulse duration 40 ps, repetition rate 10 pps and maximum peak power of signal wave is more than 30 MW. Efficient second harmonic generation pumped by ultrashort pulsed parametric laser has been obtained from 427- 470 nm in KNbO3 with 1.5 mm in length at room temperature. The energy conversion efficiency is over 40%. The peak power of 30 ps pulsed blue light is up to 60 KW.
